Yesterday I Cried
Yesterday I was,
Today I am.
Tears from yesterday are the reason that today I smile.
I smile today because of the tears split yesterday.
Today I am healed,
Today I smile,
Today I love and today I am loved.
Today I am happy because yesterday I cried.
Today I embrace my yesterday because I cried enough that my wounds are healed.
I found peace with my stitched heart.
I found love within my lifeless being.
I found hope that killed my hopelessness.
It happened yes, today because yesterday I cried.
